Subject: the heat
Don't any of the complainers do any research on the venue BEFORE they buy tickets?
The Mojave desert is second only to the Sahara of inhabited deserts of the world (besides indeginous peoples are TOUGH).
It is HOT in Vegas that time of year!
I am a western U.S. boy and 'it's only weather' is the rule I live by. If you wait for the weather to be 'tail-gate' weather in the western U.S. (most of it anyway) you will never leave the comfort of your home. You'll never go fishing or camping or...............Update I was at this show in '94......Saw Dead & Co. at the Gorge Amphitheater June 8th...Good Show but feel VERY lucky to have seen ANY of the shows I did while Jerry was still with us (including this one). There's a whole generation that won't get to feel the joy it brought to see Jerry play anything.....Sad........

What was interesting was seeing the hard core Deadheads from out West that must still live on communes and on tour. I left a snowball sitting for about 5 seconds and some rats who smelled like the portolets swiped it.
The coolest thing was on one of those nights there was a wedding during the set break and those marshmallows flying everywhere. I seem to recall the World Cup going on during these shows too.
But it was the third night when they broke loose with the music. Then the Shoreline afterward was an ultimate tour experience.

That was my 1st GD show, having been asked to go by a NC friend for years. TRAFFIC was the reason i went. Gotta love those drums and Traffic/Windwood songs/voice..
Subject: I found a ticket!!!
Subject: What's the big deal?
Subject: UGH VINCE!!!!!!
Subject: first show!!!
Subject: The heart is there...but
Subject: Listen To Broken Arrow
Subject: Sorry, folks, but this was a clunker!!
want a copy of this show. The best song the band
played that night was Don't Ease Me In, which was
the *only* time Jerry showed up that night!
The reprise of Good Times was led by Weir, not
Jerry; who was clearly impaired and ravaged by
his demons -- and not the heat! Cumberland was so
lifeless and weak that I've heard several bar
bands play it better!
After a limp Iko second set opener was my only
live experience of Samba In The Rain, a song so
painfully embarassing that it makes Day Job look
like St. Stephen! Estimated was halfway decent,
thanks to Phil, who literally forced Jerry to
come up with a few lines. However, He's Gone
was so wretched and pathetic that I was
*relieved* when the song ended.
There are a few moments of sustenance in
GDTRFB, but neither Miracle nor the JB Goode
encore truly *rock!* SOTM is interesting for
a guitar solo in the song's middle (after the
bridge), but the playing is disjointed and
never hits the levels of the previous years.
A show with a fine setlist plus many
instances of poor playing plus Jerry's
incompetence in spots equals one very poor
Subject: second best...
I had tickets for the 2nd nite -- decided to split -- too hot -- left a ticket on some green hippie VW bus with Wisconsin plates in the Sam's Town parking lot -- if the owner of the bus reads this, hope you enjoyed the show.
Subject: hot is right
Subject: Too Hot to Handle
Subject: Yeah, it's getting hot
Subject: my favorite weekend - EVER
